Bring the Rain

I can count a million times
People asking me how I
Can praise You with all that I've gone through

The question just amazes me

Can circumstances possibly

Change who I forever am in You

Maybe since my life was changed

Long before these rainy days
It's never really ever crossed my mind
To turn my back on you, oh Lord

My only shelter from the storm

But instead I draw closer through these times

So I pray

Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free

Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there'll be days

When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You

Jesus, bring the rain

I am Yours regardless of
The dark clouds that may loom above

Because You are much greater than my pain
You who made a way for me

By suffering Your destiny
So tell me what's a little rain

So I pray

Bring me joy, bring me peace

Bring the chance to be free

Bring me anything that brings You glory

And I know there'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain

Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy

Is the Lord God Almighty
Is the Lord God Almighty

Mercy Me, from their Coming Up to Breathe album

The lyrics are absolutely beautiful. All I can say is amen! Even though the rain is very hard (physical and emotional)it's there to teach us. Thanks for this sweetie!

Hope you're feeling well today!
